Christmas is oh so close now and I thought I’d write a little something about the type and colour of costume jewellery you might want to wear to your work Christmas party, family Christmas dinner or for your Christmas ball.

The main colours for the holiday season are reds and greens, but for some reason you don’t see many items of clothing on the high street in these colours. Normally you get your little black dresses, tops, skirts or shirts, so how do you look Christmas-sy in black!? Simple, add a dash of colour with some costume jewellery.

People can be quiet shy to wear for example red earrings, or a green bracelet, but it can look so fabulous when worn right. For example, you could team up a gorgeous LBD with a red necklace and earring set like the one below and with a pair of red shoes to look stunning at your Christmas party.

Cocktail rings are the best and easiest (not to say the cheapest!) way to add colour to an outfit and a burst of this season’s hottest colour. Cocktail rings are one of those accessories that never go out of fashion, can never be worn enough, and is suitable for people of all ages, young or old! And the chunkier the cocktail ring the more in fashion you will be.

Bracelets are also great to add to your fashionable outfit. The next best thing to cocktail rings, bracelets really do add pizzazz to your work wear or evening wear. Try going for a light red bracelet for day wear and a darker, more burgundy colour bracelet for evening wear.

And don’t think its only women who can wear colour- men can wear gorgeous red or green crystal cufflinks. And because they are just so stunning, you can wear them to work too!

Finally, you really cannot go wrong with a fine piece of hair accessory. For those of you who are on the shy side and want to follow fashion but don’t want to stand out in a crowd too much go for a gorgeous little hair slide in red. This hair accessory also makes great bridal jewellery for Christmas Brides and really does add a touch of sparkle.
